  • Published 1956 in The Journal of biological chemistry


Mitochondria of all animal tissues, so far investigated, contain an enzyme system which catalyzes the oxidation of mesoand (-)-tartrate. Certain properties of this enzyme system, such as its extraction and coensyme requirements as well as the isolation of oxidation products of tartrate, were described in a previous publication (1). The reconstruction of… (More)
